Non-surgical orthopaedic treatments available in Canterbury
There are many evidence-based non-surgical therapies available that are effective in treating discomfort, injury and trauma in your musculoskeletal system.
Exercise conditioning program
A gentle exercise program that is designed to improve your overall health and muscle strength improves surgical outcomes and can provide symptomatic relief from chronic aches, inflammation or trauma-related joint irritation.
An orthopaedic surgeon in Canterbury can prescribe injections of corticosteroids, hyaluronic acid or platelet-rich plasma for inflammation, discomfort and mobility issues.
As an orthopaedic surgeon in Canterbury, Dr Siva uses radiofrequency ablation to deactivate the nerves that are sending signals from the affected area to your brain.
Conditioning exercise programs, pain-relieving injections and radiofrequency ablation are just some of the options surgeons can use to alleviate your joint issues.
Surgical treatments available in Canterbury
Unfortunately, not all musculoskeletal issues and trauma can be treated with the non-surgical methods above. In these cases, surgery will be recommended by Dr Chandrasekaran, our orthopaedic surgeon.
Knee and hip arthroscopy
A key-hole joint arthroscope can help your orthopaedic surgeon discover what is causing your discomfort, inflammation or trauma. Orthopaedic surgeons can also use this technique to treat ACL tears or other trauma-related injuries.
Knee and hip replacement surgery
Joint and hip replacement surgery are recommended if there’s significant damage from wear and tear, trauma or medical conditions like osteoarthritis.
Robotic joint replacement surgery
Orthopaedic surgeons embrace innovative technology like these robotic aids which help plan, navigate and perform knee or hip replacement surgery.
In some cases, joint replacement surgery or arthroscopes are the only options to alleviate joint and mobility issues.
